Anyone else having problems with getting MADIS data (and plotting them)?
This started just a few days ago. I hope it's a temporary problem with them.

The FSU Madis has a good number of stations, but the "big file" is really missed...hope it returns!

NOAA has changed their format. I hope that Tim can change digatom soon.

Well, I notice even the whole domain of
http://www.madis-fsl.org/
is down or gone ... at this time.

Post subject:  New URL - FIXED

OK ... the format has changed a little. So here is the new URL for the BIG Madis file:

http://madis-data.noaa.gov/cgi-bin/textXmlRqt?rdr=http%3A%2F%2Fpublic_madis_public%3A0823p%21nIaB%40madis-data.noaa.gov%2FmadisPublic%2Fcgi-bin%2FmadisXmlPublicDir%3F&time=0&minbck=-60&minfwd=0&recwin=3&dfltrsel=0&state=VA&latll=35&lonll=-83&latur=39&lonur=-78&stanam=&stasel=0&pvdrsel=0&varsel=2&qcsel=1&xml=0&csvmiss=0

You can replace this in your RETRIEVE data URL for Big MADIS NOAA file
However, I recommend you go to this site:
http://madis-data.noaa.gov/public/sfcdumpguest.html

And select the state/area and dataset you want. It makes for smaller files.
For example, I chose Virginia, and selected the meso nets that apply (excluding FL, GA DOTS/nets, etc) choosing the public data like Anything Wx, VDOT, CWOP, etc.
I actually excluded the NOAA Metars since that is ingested and plotted first anyway.
After you run your choices ... save the URL that results. For VA I got...

http://madis-data.noaa.gov/cgi-bin/textXmlRqt?rdr=http%3A%2F%2Fpublic_madis_public%3A0823p%21nIaB%40madis-data.noaa.gov%2FmadisPublic%2Fcgi-bin%2FmadisXmlPublicDir%3F&time=0&minbck=-60&minfwd=0&recwin=3&dfltrsel=0&state=VA&latll=35&lonll=-83&latur=39&lonur=-78&stanam=&stasel=0&pvdrsel=1&varsel=2&qcsel=1&xml=0&csvmiss=0&pvd=MARITIME&pvd=COOP&pvd=APRSWXNET&pvd=AWS&pvd=AWX&pvd=MAP&pvd=RAWS&pvd=VADOT&pvd=WxFlow&pvd=WXforYou

That means I download a 160K file instead of a huge file.

You might want to read restriction of use seen on this page
http://madis.noaa.gov/madis_restrictions.html
I wonder how that may apply to non-government, and profit agencies.

I hope all this is correct. This gets a little complicated.
